I’m a 13 year old boy and I feel that my parents are worrying a little much. I have been a diabetic since I was 7 and am on a pump and can check my own sugars give my own injections and insulin and all that.
They often won’t let me go to the movies with friends because what if I pass out and no one will know what to do. and even their parents come and know im diabetic. One of my friends parents asked if i could go to an amusement park with them for the day. Its an hour and a half away. Once again I couldn’t go because what if i passed out. no one would know what to do.
There’s going to be days in life when im an adult and have to go places, and I can’t call them for permission and it just makes me upset that this condition owns my life. How do I earn my freedom. I make good grades and know how to care for my condition. I try to be a good kid.
